Digital Media in the Age of NSA Surveillance
This panel will cover the implications of US spying and data-collection on American digital media domestically and around the world, and explore how digital companies should respond in the wake of government demands for user information. Should digital companies be standing up for their users’ privacy and be more transparent about government intrusions – and practically speaking – can they in the current legal environment? Among other things, the panel will be walked through a hypothetical government investigation to underscore the limited options in-house counsel may face in the wake of a national security-based inquiry.
Panelists: Peter Canfield, Partner, Jones Day (Moderator); Stewart A. Baker, Partner, Steptoe & Johnson LLP; Susan Freiwald, Professor of Law, University of San Francisco School of Law; Nate Jones, Attorney, Microsoft Corp.; Marc J. Zwillinger, Foundier, Zwillgen PLLC
